Goddess and the Baker I had been invited to the press preview of our newest coffee shop, Goddess and the Baker here in Brookfield, WI. Unfortunately, I was very sick that day and could not attend. But a week later I met with my photographer Amanda to talk business, snap some blog pics and have
Recently, I realized that we had not taken any family photos since our Holiday pics last year with Kat of Double You Photography. It’s always him taking pics of me and Lily, or me taking pics of him and Lily. And with the Wisconsin weather changing over, I wanted to get some Fall feels in our
Layers, Denim and Stripes… Oh my Fall is here bringing all the cozy feels, and of course, the fashion along with it! I love that time of the year when it’s just a little brisk and you can throw on a couple of cute layers, with no jacket needed. When I put this duster over
A couple weeks ago we did a Lauren and Lillian “mommy and me” session in a sunflower field and apple orchard with Kat of Double You Photography while we waited for daddy to meet us for family pics. So grateful to have some mother-daughter moments captured, as I’m usually the one holding the camera! I
For months I’d known that we had a wedding coming up in the rural mountains of Montana. I’d seen the pictures of the mountains on the bride-to-be’s Instagram. One of which she simply captioned “The picture doesn’t do it justice.” Yeah yeah, the mountains are gorgeous, take a pic etc etc. But she’s SO right!
Recently I took a trip back down to Chicago to visit the pop up experience The Happy Place. It’s basically a blogger’s paradise. Instagramland if you will. A warehouse installation with several different rooms full of fun and colorful photo ops! Obviously, I had to check it out before it’s last day, September 3rd, 2018.
OH this darling dusty blue dress for our date night in Door County! (okay that was a little heavy on the alliteration…) But for real, this dress!!! I bought this as my birthday present to myself during a quick shopping trip the day before we left for our getaway. I went to SoHo Boutique,
Patio life is the life for me! Especially in a cute jumpsuit. Eating and drinking outside on gorgeous Summer day, in a great outfit with good people makes me REALLY happy! It feels like such a treat when you live in Wisconsin, or anywhere it’s cold for over half of the year. Give me a
This afternoon with Lillian was not the first, and I’m sure won’t be the last time that I’m the only mom at the park wearing a dress. Maybe I’m crazy for getting dressed up in mom life. Maybe I’m just a fashion fanatic. Maybe looking good just makes me feel good and love living in
When I heard that I new clothing boutique was opening up in our little village of Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, I was obviously excited and anxious for it’s arrival. I was invited to the opening party of Soho Boutique this Winter, where I shopped, sipped wine and tried on too many clothes. Since I’ve returned to
Recently I was invited by Pamela Kieck, Badger Liquor and Veuve Cliquot on a boat ride along the Milwaukee river. Anything that involves champs and chatting with my blogger babes is already appealing. But also while floating through the city on a Veuve cruise? YASSS PLEASE! So it was time for some pre-summer style to
Black and white polka dots is a classic print that we will continue to see season after season. The tie-front/cut-out trend is something that will come and go. But this polka dot dress combines the two terrifically for trending lightly this Spring and Summer. Surprisingly I only own one other polka dot piece, and I
